Option two requires a lot of work. A lot of work the NCAA doesn't want to do. To my knowledge, they didn't even launch their own investigation, they just went off the internal investigation from PSU.
So lazy they gave President Mark Emmert powers to personally levy the penalties rather than launch their own investigation.
IMO, that's what it comes down to.
I hate the NCAA, don't get me wrong, but I think Lazy is the wrong word here. I think they just wanted to distance themselves as much as possible from this mess...
